Good Morning All, Company left at noon yesterday. It was a good time; but I am enjoying a quiet morning this morning.

JERI-Congratulations on the new car; that's always exciting!
CAZ-Glad the insulation is done.
CAT-My sister lives in the Columbia River Gorge; internet service is limited there too!

Getting back into routine here; did keep my streaks going--pleased with that.
Be well everyone.

Good morning. Yesterday we bought a new car. We haven't had a car payment in about 20 years. I'm going to really have to watch my spending now. I'm excited about the new car, but not about the payment.

Joy I'm glad you had such a good time :)
Patti wrap up and turn the heating on LOL
Jeri I hate that type of headache, so debilitating. Hope he's better now. The Fright Night sounds like a lot of fun........never had anything like that when I was little LOL- how times change.
Cat we had internet problems over the weekend- just showed how much we depend on it.

The loft insulation guys are coming today, be glad to see it done.
Hopefully they'll be done in 4 hours.

Howdy all.
Rain off and on all day but I got in a good dry walk.
Frustrating computer issues as our internet service is so bad here and when the weather is bad it gets worse.
Oh well.
I was able to download the new Heriot Periot book written by Sophie Hananah. So far it's great.

Good morning. It's time to take a nap, I think. My husband woke up with a headache so bad it's making him sick. I hope that goes away.

Saturday night we took the kids to Fright Night. They went on a Zombie Paintball Hayride (shooting zombies with paintballs), and they went on a Haunted Hayride. The Haunted Hayride was so much fun!!! The kids were so scared! They had a really good time. On the way home we stopped for hot chocolate, and 2 of the kids fell asleep in the car after that. This is such a fun time of year.

Good Morning All, Woke with a headache this morning; unusual. Just too far off kilter with my "normal" diet. Back on track today.
MN, I think everyone should have a cabin for "time outs" ! I love that you take that time and enjoy it so much! I don't feel that need; I'm sort of an urban hermit. Love my home and gardens and do like living alone. Looking forward to getting back into "my" routine. Have enjoyed these last 4 days; but couldn't live this way. Stressful for me to have someone here "round the clock" and DB is used to "being in charge" as am I. I just go with the flow when he's here and it has been fun.
Lynette, Only advice I have is the standard healthy choices; good diet and weight bearing exercise. I don't even take the bone density test because I'm not willing to take the medicine--but that's me--not advice for anyone else.
CAZ, sounds like you have another full day! I hope the weather is kind!

Cooler here, but nice. We had a wonderful day yesterday. DGS's campus is in the Mountains of Eastern KY and it was just beautiful! Five of us went up for the visit and the road trip was fun (large, comfortable vehicle and good visiting), then campus tour; dinner out, pictures and home again. Nice day. All is well
Make it a great week everyone!

Joy I'm not good on horses form or whether they're better on hard or soft course but every year I have one bet on the Grand National..........have only won twice emoticon emoticon As you say it's a bit of fun!
Patti hope you got your chores done and got some fun time in too.
MN wonderful way to spend Sunday- you are so lucky it's so close!
Cat seems like kicking back is the order of the day, what books did you download?
Lynette the only advice I can give is eat heathily and get some ST in- it helps strengthen bones as well as muscles, your doc might put you on a medication for Osteoporosis nof.org/articles/9

Lovely day here so far despite the fact that the tail end of Hurricane Gonzalo is supposed to hit us today.
So walk and workout before the rains come and I have a hair salon appointment at 3...........bet you any money you like that it will be raining when I'm done there emoticon

It's a beautiful Fall day, so I'm going to play hooky from the "W" word (work) and am on my way to the cabin for a brisk walk, some reading time in my porch, and a supper of whatever is left in the cupboards out there! Enjoy each day!

Good Morning All, On the go weekend. More eating out than is good for me but part of seeing everyone. I will get back in balance after everyone is gone. Good day at the races yesterday and time with more family. Today, a road trip to go visit DGS at college. More eating out, I choose wisely but I'm still eating too much. Will get back on track tomorrow. No mindless eating, I know what I need to do.
CAZ, I'm not very good at picking horses. Have a program, do my picking, none won. Only bet on the last race and lost. Bet for fun, no worries. No big winners in our group yesterday but we had a good time. Tiring week. Have kept streaks going. Have a great day everyone!

Marilyn WTG I fend off evening snacking by keeping my hands busy, reading or doing a crossword.

Managed to get the lawns cut yesterday but OMG it came over dark- like the end of the world
Also got my kitchen tiles (ceiling to floor) washed down and and all the units and sorted out the wardrobes for winter!!
I have no chance of getting back out there today for gardening-it's pouring.
Just hope it brightens later and I'll chance a walk.

Hi Everybody!
Jeri, I am so sorry to hear of your fender bender. Thank goodness for insurance. The anecdote about your ex BIL was enlightening. I am hoping he is not driving very much or at all
with his addiction issue. The longer I am in recovery, the more I realize that the majority of
people struggling with addictions aren't willing or able to face them. It takes a huge commitment, but substance abuse kills people. And so many substances, including junk food,
are supported by big business, since they are money makers. Until that changes, things will
continue to be a huge issue for all of our society.

I am halfway thru my 5% Fall Challenge, and am on target with my weight loss. The hardest
part so far has been the last 2 weeks, where we were supposed to eliminate evening eating,
except a planned snack. That is really tough for me.

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the fall colors.
Have a great weekend!

Good morning! It's Friday. Yay!!!!
Yesterday morning I left the house to go to work, and I accidentally backed into my neighbor's car. It was parked across the street behind my driveway. It was dark and rainy, and I just didn't see it. But BOOM CRUNCH! There it was! It was early, and their house was dark. The husband had left for work, and the wife and kids were asleep (fall break from school). I didn't want to wake all the kids, so my husband said he would call later in the morning. There was really nowhere to leave a note in the rain. So he called them later, but they had already seen it. They didn't know who did it, so they had called the police. Fortunately, this is a small town. Everyone knows mostly everyone. Anyway, when I got home from work and apologized and gave them my insurance card. They called the police back and told them they had the insurance, and that it wasn't a hit and run, and all that stuff. The police came and took a copy of my insurance and my license, and it's really no big deal. But as we were talking to the police, my ex-son-in-law came staggering drunk down the street. And what do you think he wanted?? A ride to the liquor store. I told him to ask the policeman. He just laughed. I had to apologize to the policeman, and I asked him not to hold it against me. He said it was all good. He's known Chad for years, and he knows Chad loves his alcohol. :-/ Anyway... I'm glad I didn't get a ticket or anything. Just an accident on a dark, rainy morning with a very narrow road.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good Morning All, Another rainy morning here; hoping to get a walk in this afternoon but have a lot to do in prep for company too. Grocery shopping to stock all the foods that I don't eat: white bread, chips, ham, chicken, snack foods, milk, coke; and we'll be eating out most of the time! Family visits are difficult; but I do love my brother! Need to make up the beds and dust/vac the bed rooms. House is still in good order; the changes made this summer are making it so much easier to keep it nice.
I've found that alcohol and certain allergy meds trigger me to have strange dreams. Luckily, it's rare that I have either anymore. Life is good!

Jeri glad you had a good race, good luck with the next one in November.
Patti, that's the trouble with autumnal weather,it forces us indoors. At least we have a backup plan.
Joy I enjoyed your blog yesterday, just goes to show what it takes to keep healthy. Good luck prepping for the family visit.
MN if I told people some of my dreams I'd be taken away to the "funny farm"- they are so WEIRD! Glad you enjoyed pickleball.
Anne ah the tube.....memories LOL... sweaty armpits, papers out, no one talking, glaring looks...........nah don't miss it LOL.. Hope all the hassle was more than made up for by the people on the course and making new acquaintances.
CAT someone else who was stuck indoors yesterday- at least you get pampered today.

Quiet day here, off to Argos to get new lights for the kitchen- going to fix them before the insulation in installed. I will be so pleased to see the back of that bloody florescent tube, hate the light it emits. Having a walk while the sun lasts, we're due storms later this morning so another day will go by without getting in the garden. At least the lawns are greening up, they look so lush!

Although also managed lots of steps now have to do course work and be assessed while also trying to do my teaching..glad I had my holiday in the sun to set me up. Sandwich lunches and biscuits but not too much need to have an early night and hope to have 30mins in the morning for exercise before work as teaching next 2 days with very short working lunch and 10 days of e-mails to be checked.

Oh, NFC, funny. I have crazy dreams, too, but have not yet had one about online friends! Had fun at pickleball last night, and got a good workout, but left a little earlier than usual so I could get home and do some work on the transcribing job. Still have probably 5 hours work left in order the finish. The last two interviews are on webcam and the mic did not have good placement so will be very hard to hear/understand and I'll be hitting the rewind button many times!! Oh, well, will be a little extra cash to stick away for the wedding and trip to Caymans.

Good Morning, Lots of early posters on this team; even with the time zones accounted for! I prefer to think that it's because we're an "active" group that has a lot going on that's not "online". Thank you those that have already been kind enough to comment on my blog. Yesterday was another rainy day that gave birth to two blogs; I'm saving one. Hate to post too close together, second one was just for fun. Actually a stall, postponing a task I wasn't keen on. But, did get that task done too; searching files for pictures for another project. In the process I found one that got me going on the blog I posted last night. Now, I have to save the other pictures to a flash drive and take them in to get prints made. I do not like working with the technology; once I have the prints, I'll enjoy assembling the album.
Today I have to start prepping the guest rooms and spiff up the house some for houseguests. Dear brother and his wife are coming in Thursday night for a long weekend. Always glad to see them. Life is good; be well everyone.

Good morning. It's another rainy day. The rain is causing moldy allergies or something, and I feel like someone has shoved a pencil in my ear. I've taken some dayquil to try to knock the just plain yuck feeling. I really need a nap :-)

The race was great this weekend!! Fantastic weather, lots of friends!! I used the race as a solid training run for my upcoming full marathon (Nov 1st). Just a nice, solid run. Not in too much of a hurry, but not slacking, either. I was very pleased.

Usual thanksgiving meal centers around turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy, often sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, tho in my family it was more likely carrots, corn if i had my choice. Pumpkin Pie for dessert. Yum! My bf loves that meal so i hope he will prepare it one day soon. His kids aren't keen on it so he was not going to roast a bird for them for Thanksgiving. I would be SO appreciative ;-)

Hi all. Posting early today as I am hosting a Thrive emergency food 'party' tonight at the local community center.
I had a wild dream last night that involved MN and Joy. Good grief, I wonder where that came from.
Caz, you are so logical with your solution to the boards, etc. Good luck with that.
Jeri, how was the 1/2 marathon this weekend?
Lynette, what is the customary Thanksgiving day feast in Canada?
Another wonderful fall day here after a lot of heavy rain last night.

Beautiful Fall day here, and I'm going to enjoy each and every one. A year from now will be my trip to Grand Caymans, so I have that to get me through the cold, hard winter!! Trying to get in extra steps today and will play pickleball tonight for some good cardio.

Good morning! It's a rainy day here in Kentucky. I'm glad I can basically find my way to work blindfolded, because the dark morning and wet roads made it really difficult to see to drive!! 20+ miles of curvy, narrow roads was not a fun trip this morning. But I got to work and found homemade peanut butter balls on my desk. So yummy.

Well it looks like the autumn weather is getting to us all now, that said the sun is TRYING to come out here so I'm hoping for a walk after brekkie.
But no chance of gardening, rained all day yesterday, YUK.

Good thing is we're on the last leg of sorting the loft- trouble is Pete is thinking of keeping all the old boards in case they come in handy "for something else" but we really have no place to store.
He stood there scratching his head yesterday an sighing and then I solved the problem! emoticon
I said; "Put the decent ones back in the loft after the new boards are laid and use the conti-boards to make a workbench/cupboard in the garage to house all your tools. The we can remove the temporary shelves and clear out the garage and make more room for your bikes! 3 problems solved in one go!!"""

Did I actually say make more room for the bikes? emoticon emoticon

So plan of action today; walk (hopefully) finish up and clear up!

Have a good day all emoticon

Howdy all.
Wind really blowing here today. I did get in a walk before it got bad.
I've been milling about the house all day. Did get some sewing done but that's about it.

I was lazy yesterday. Was a bit drizzly this morning, but the sun is shining now and it's actually quite warm out. I'm hoping to get in a good walking session after work. I need to ramp up my exercise intensity to burn more calories since I can't seem to control my cravings very well!

Good Morning All, Rainy morning here, but a nice soft rain. emoticon I have a chart that I keep by my computer to track my fitness goals, which are necessarily flexible. If I'm short on fitness minutes but make my 10,000 steps I'm OK; and vice versa. But when I have a run of days, as I have this rainy past week, where I'm not making either, it's time to pay attention. Keeping my streaks going keeps that from being a total disaster but it's time to pay attention and re-institute my "in house" "sparks" of walking. 4-6 10 minute walks a day are doable and take care of it. Put on some good music and off I go! Lots to do inside. Enjoy your day!

Joy, no gardening for me today, appalling storm outside.
Anne welcome home to rainy October. It was sunny while you were away, you missed our Indian Summer!


Sounds like everyone had a good weekend. I got loads done and got 2 hour long walks in yesterday. One on my Todd and the second with Pete; John was busy watching England qualify for Euro Footie so he fancied a walk with me instead.

Hi all.
I shut down without posting so had to log back in.
Sounds like a lot of good weekend going on around the team.
Got in grocery shopping and walk before the rain began.
The nights are cooling off here.

The thermometer says it's 63 degrees, but that's deceiving as it's windy, cloudy and damp. I think I'll forego the walking today and take a day off. I've been to church, grocery store, paid some bills online, wrote a little blurb for a group I attend, got my music ready for next week, and threw a batch of chili into the crockpot for supper. 'Nuf work for one day, I say!
